Birds; blue, white, green and black, handmade flowers, frame it and either foam core or thick card board.
This is my effort, a very messy project (my favourite kind lol) so I'll also be entering in into this weeks challenge from Tuesday Taggers which is 'Get Messy'. They also have a great prize of a £15 voucher for the Craft Barn .
I started by making some bps using starburst stains and glimmer mists in various green and blue shades, I used the scrunch technique for one and put cling film on the other and left them to dry. Once they were ready, I cut a 6x6 frame from thick card board and covered it with the scrunched bp, stamped it with the tail feathers of one of the bird stamps from Elusive Images in black versafine. I then smeared on some pale blue glitter glue and added some AI glitter in Nirvana (I think thats my favourite colour glitter ever). I then took the cling film bp and stamped the bird silhouette (again from Elusive Images) in black versafine and embossed with clear EP before adding dots of glitter glue. While this was drying, I stamped flowers (again from EI, I do love Glenda's stamps lol) 2 of each of 3 sizes on to the left over bp. I covered 3 with glitter glue and left 3 plain. The bird house and bird were stamped on to the same bp which had been glued to more thick card and again, I added a very thin layer of glitter glue. I left them all to dry and then curled the flower petals and used an embossing tool in their centres to 'cup' them before layering them all up and adding a tiny black button in the centre. I trimmed the main image and matted it on to some pale blue linen paper, it looked a bit plain so I gave it another frame using red line tape and AI Summer Sea Glitter. I threaded odds and ends of beads on to some headpins, popped them on to a safety pin and stuck them on to the frame with silicone, added the bird house, flower and bird. To make the hanger, I took blue and green memory thread and some thin white organza ribbon, which i twisted round, and threaded a few blue and green beads on to finish off.
I'm also entering this in to the following challenges:
My Time to Craft which is 'In the Frame'
Corrosive Challenge - Wings
One Stop Craft Challenge - Wall Hanging
